For most, opening up Instagram may cause us to fall into the trap that is aimless scrolling. But we hope our curated list of local Instagrams to follow will, at the very least, keep your time occupied with beautifully and locally curated content. Whether you’re looking for some tasty new recipes, unique home decor inspiration, or a few encouraging words, we thought these accounts might keep your spirits up during that midday scroll.

So, take a glimpse into Lakeland by seeing it through these local Instagrammers’ eyes. Whether their feeds highlight their everyday lives or their niche areas of expertise, hopefully you’ll leave your social media minute (or couple of minutes) feeling encouraged and inspired by these accounts.
